Wine Enthusiast has named Portland as one of "America's 5 New Foodie Cities," alongside Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Jackson Hole, and Charlottesville, VA. The piece opens with the line "Portland (Maine) is the new Portland (Oregon)," which feels like trolling at its finest, but then instructs readers not to miss out on Eventide Oyster Co., David's Opus Ten, and Vinland.
In other Wine Enthusiast news, not a single Maine restaurant made the magazine's list of "America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants." Perhaps next time around the state will fare better, now that its outstanding reputation for food is being acknowledged. What are your top picks for wine restaurants in Maine?
